The Los Angeles Times has the exclusive scoop that Noomi Rapace is taking a lead part in a new boxing movie – opposite her ex-husband. Rapace, who is on the verge of English-language stardom with a role in “Sherlock Holmes 2,” is set to star in a biopic about the colorful Swedish boxer Boss Hogberg, in which she’ll play real-life cabaret singer Anita Lindblom, who was married to the prizefighter. Rapace will star in the English-language movie with Ola Rapace, to whom she was married for seven years. Hogberg’s life and career was the stuff of “Raging Bull”-esque legend: The product of a working-class Gothenburg neighborhood, Hogberg captured the light-middleweight title (and lost it three weeks later), boxed through pain (he once fought 14 rounds with a broken jaw), romanced starlets, dealt with alcoholism and ran into legal troubles like Jack Thompson used to run into right hooks. His life changed – somewhat – when he met and married Lindblom. Even with Noomi Rapace’s schedule filling up, producers say they’re not concerned about timing, with the idea to shoot the as-yet-untitled film as early as this summer in Sweden and France.
